Thank jingle.boy for bringing this to my attention.  With shipping being redonkulous, not sure how many will participate but lets give it a go.


Rules:
*  Don't tell anyone who you have.  If you need gift ideas, PM me and I will contact your SS, or you can post suggestions for yourself in this thread once the matchmaking is done.
*  Gifts should be around $30 not including shipping.
*  Plan on shipping your gift at least a week before someone's "Need by" date.  Different people might have different dates, be courteous to your recipient.  This includes being late, try not to be too late.
*  Pictures or video of you opening is required.  Video preferred.
*  There is a minimum "notoriety" requirement.  Due to my lack of activity, I will defer decisions of new people to a counsel of trusted users.  In all but two cases, the person who fails to give a gift is a newbie.  A repeat of seven years ago non-participants is unacceptable.
*  You must provide me with tracking information.  I have two suggestions to do this and one for keeping shipping down:
1) Buy from Amazon or other online vendor that provides you a tracking number.  HOWEVER, they will ship it fast, so if you want to go that route, send the participant a card with a letter (which some of us do anyway), and send it a week before you order.  Address it to the person and their handle so they know it is from DTF.  In the letter state their gift will come direct from the vendor(s) and wish have fun with the rest.
2)  USPS isn't that bad usually, I have sent things three day for about $10 in the past.  Make sure you have a tracking number to give me if I ask for it.
*NEW FOR THIS YEAR* If you have Nick, send it by FedEx.  He will appreciate it  ;D

I have somehow never taken part in this.

I would like to, if it's OK.

Thanks, Chad!

Sad to say it, but I think I need to step away from the fun this year.  Going to be in europe the two weeks right before Christmas and I just don't think this works out easily into my schedule this year to not only get a gift going but to receive and do a video for a gift either.  I expect to be participating again next year, but timing is not on my side this year.

This saddens me  :'(    But, it's understandable.

Fair warning to whoever gets me - I will be out of state on Vacation from 12/21-12/28. If my item comes during that time, my video will have to wait till I'm back. Don't rush yourself though :)

With the shit storm that identifies as today's retail shipping infrastructure, we'll be watching videos well into January anyways. Don't trip.
